Crime Stoppers asks for signage

Crime Stoppers of Northwestern Ontario and northern Minnesota has submitted a request to the Town of Fort Frances to erect signs promoting the program here.
Council voted to refer the request to the Operations and Facilities executive committee at its regular meeting Monday night.
“This program is currently exploring the opportunity to provide high-impact and professional signage to be affixed to existing street signage within the communities it serves in a manner that would not affect the impact of the existing signs,” OPP Det. Cst. Gary Potter wrote in a letter to council.
“This would be a permanent and effective means to enhance the program’s visibility to the public,” he added.
Det. Cst. Potter, co-ordinator for the regional Crime Stoppers program, noted the signs would be provided at no cost, and that the town only would be asked to erect them.
Also at Monday night’s meeting, council:
•authorized the levying and collection in 2007 of a special charge of taxes upon the Business Improvement Area;
•authorized the 2007, 2008, and 2009 salary ranges and benefits for management and non-union employees;
•designated lots 89-94 and 115-121 (301 Nelson St.); and
•amended the Traffic Control Bylaw to establish a prohibited parking space on the south side of the 1300 block of Elizabeth Street East and to relocate a bicycle parking zone on the 200 block of Scott Street.
